@Raspberry_Pi meet up at @NYCResistor #AmericanPi – @adafruit @element14
Adafruit had a great time visiting with Rob Bishop from Raspberry Pi at NYC Resistor in Brooklyn. Lots of enthusiastic folks showed up and learned, shared, and made all around the Raspberry Pi single board computer. Some photos and notes below!
Becky, gone Pi crazy.
Rob sets up demo Raspberry Pi projects
Phil and Matt were hard at work on their laptops, but Limor and Becky were just in the moment. 🙂
Above Limor demonstrates the RasPi light painting project, which you can learn to build over on the Adafruit Learning site.
Special thanks to Rob Bishop (Liz and Eben)PiBow folks for a case and Newark Element 14 for some great prizes in addition to all the Adafruit gear in the page (thank you Grace C. Wilson L. Elizabeth H. Denise F. Suzanne C. Scott G. and Tom M and the team at Newark Element 14).
Matt Mets demos his and Max Henstell’s internet-controlled LED strip. They also won 3 Raspberry Pis to further their project.
Adafruit has had paid day off for voting for our team for years, if you need help getting that going for your organization, let us know – we can share how and why we did this as well as the good results. Here are some resources for voting by mail, voting in person, and some NY resources for our NY based teams as well. If there are additional resources to add, please let us know – adafruit.com/vote
Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
